CORONAVIRUS

(COVID-19)

TEMPORARY APPOINTMENT PROTOCOL:

SEPTEMBER 2020

Due to the fragility and high-risk factors of our patients (as well as our staff) the Tysons Pain Center community is significantly more susceptible to Covid-19, which is why

our office will remain temporarily closed until it is safe to resume regular office operations.

 

The health and safety of our patients, physician & staff, and those surrounding us is our main priority.

Telemedicine / remote services are taking place on a limited schedule for current patients.

No in-person examinations,  or medical procedures will take place until further notice.

 

We will continue to monitor the changes in status of the Covid-19 pandemic, and hope to resume regular office examinations and procedures when it is safe to do so.  

When we re-open and resume regular in-person appointments and procedures,

new appointment safety guidelines and procedures will be posted here. 

(When we re-open, appointment and safety protocol will be strictly adjusted for the health & safety during this health crisis)

 

 APPOINTMENT PROTOCOL DURING COVID-19 TEMPORARY SHUT DOWN:

You will be contacted by the office for telehealth services

when you are due to for a reevaluation and/or medication refills.

Prescriptions are now sent in electronic format only. 

Medication refills will be sent directly to your pharmacy digitally by Dr. Nagia.

FEELING SICK, OR HAVING COVID-19 SYMPTOMS? DRIVE UP TESTING AVAILABLE NOW.

D.C., Maryland and Virginia are opening new coronavirus testing sites with both drive-through and walk-up options for adults, children and vulnerable populations as the pandemic grips the region.

 

Since testing kits are still considered limited, all sites in the area require a remote or onsite pre-screening with a physician to determine if a patient meets the criteria to get tested.

 

If they do, they’ll receive a doctor’s order and be able to make an appointment at a testing site like those below. Some are established clinics and hospitals, others are temporary sample collection sites.
